The Maryland Heights Residents for Responsible Growth, according to its website, is a group of concerned citizens formed in 2008 in response to plans by the City of Maryland Heights and private developers to build extensive commercial properties in the Howard Bend floodplain—the unique open green space between Creve Coeur Lake and the Missouri River.
Those plans deteriorated, but the group still organizes and educates local residents about development activity in Maryland Heights.
Right now, Maryland Heights Residents for Responsible Growth has nearly 4,000 signatures on a petition to stop a large-scale commercial development in the floodplain adjacent to Creve Coeur Park. To sign that petition, click here.
The group has four main goals:
- Preserve Howard Bend green space
- Revitalize Maryland Heights neighborhoods
- Protect the environment
- Promote public engagement
Doors for the trivia night open at 6:15 p.m. with the questions starting at 7 p.m.
